Some would have it that, within the universe we share, seemingly disparate events align according to plan. Well, somebody’s plan…we’re not sure whose plan, but so be it. As such, perhaps we shouldn’t have been all that surprised when, last Saturday evening, DJ Lee=Roy took delivery of a large package containing a Wm. Burroughs-authorized Dream Machine that the dog had ordered via the Loompanics catalog. On this self-same Saturday, Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up to the curb outside the Purple Bat Lounge, proffering a new strain called — are you ready for this? — Dream Machine. Coincidence? We think not. As a superabundance of great tunes played throughout the evening, co-host Reeshard stood by helplessly as Lee-Roy fascinated on his new, mind-bending toy. This threatened to derail the otherwise orderly progress of the evening, until Reeshard recalled recent events, the mention of which had an uncharacteristically humbling effect on everyone’s favorite pit bull. To learn more about this, and also to hear a lot of great music, click in the appropriate spots below. Tune in anyway…

How could a lone Saturday evening spent in a bad part of town, much less the seediest bar in said neighborhood, spawn so many questions? When (and, more importantly, why) did DJ Lee-Roy begin identifying as a Mayflower pit bull? And why did we learn this only last Saturday night? When Uncle Morty’s truck played the warped “Für Elise” tape loop, was this the siren call of a loved one’s return? Or merely the song of a bird of prey, swooping down on a victim? Was the Madison’s ‘Empowered Women’ double feature emblematic of sympathy with #MeToo? Or merely a facetious — and not to mention a slightly tacky — gesture? How did Reeshard talk Lee-Roy out of accepting a gig as the Satan’s Sadists’ mascot? Learn the answers to these and so many other questions prompted by last Saturday’s episode…why? Because expiring minds need to know. So can yours, merely by clicking in the right place, a few pixels down the page. Tune in anyway…

It was a Saturday night, just last Saturday night come to think of it, and the stars were lining up in just the right order to suit DJ Lee-Roy. A new issue of his favorite canine fetish porn mag — Paws’N’Gravy — had arrived in the mail. LaWanda, bartender & resident dominatrix at The Purple Bat Lounge, sent her signature Lee-Roy Cocktail™ to the booth. Co-host Reeshard kept his ’60s-’70s cultural references to a minimum. And the guys at The Madison programmed a twin-bill of blaxploitation favorites featuring our pit bull’s favorite actress, Pam Grier. Nearly three dozen tunes played, each one guaranteed to trigger party fission regardless of the temperature. We’re almost certain something went amiss, but damned if we can recall what it might have been. It was that kind of evening. You can share this now, without fear of getting anything on your outfit, simply by clicking immediately below. Tune in anyway…

First, DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy offer heartfelt thanks to all who chipped in on Luxuria Music’s behalf during the past fortnight’s Pledge Drive 2018. (Those who have yet to do so are advised to check the premium links at the tail end of this post.) So you’d think that, with due diligence paid to our effort to keep the station online, the guys could just return to doing what they do best: Creating the perfect soundtrack for ill-considered behavior by spinning three dozen tunes and then some. Rarely, though, is anything quite that simple, certainly not within the Purple Bat Lounge on a Saturday night. Curious sounds drew Reeshard’s attention, even as his canine co-host tried desperately to avoid acknowledging…whatever it was that emerged from the bar’s basement. The fact of The Madison featuring a literal double-header (both films about two-headed monsters) was deemed purely coincidental. Luckily, all heads concerned turned calmer once Uncle Morty’s truck pulled up, dispensing a lascivious strain – for which Lee-Roy, of course, had the perfect application. To hear how it all turned out, in addition to four block-rocking sets of music, click in the right spots just a few pixels to the south of these words. Tune in anyway…

N.C.I.P. LIFESTYLE ACCESSORIES!!

Mad Daddy  You get two lengthy complete broadcasts of Cleveland DJ ‘Mad Daddy’ Myers on one disc, containing two of his shows, one of these being his farewell appearance at WHK in Cleveland, where he made his name. Enjoy the CD booklet graphics (incorporating Lee-Roy’s chew toy) and a little essay for the inside.

MMD  During any episode of N.C.I.P. at 10pm you’ll hear Count Reeshard read Uncle Morty’s fresh menu of garden delights. It’s an education. Oh, yes. A postcard-sized, floppy metallic collant designed to burn into your brain the image of Morty’s famous ice cream truck with the faded popsicle stickers that no longer sells popsicles. When he comes careening around your corner, you’ll know just what to do. “YO! MORTY!”

LEE-ROY  Lee-Roy’s mug graces the graphics of this hex-breaking NCIP magnet; the magic talisman that provides instant relief from your clean and shiny Saturday night. And it’s the perfect reminder to listen, vanquishing your short term memory loss. What was I saying?

Chicken  LET THE CHICKEN IN! The inaugural program premium that started the NCIP magnet craze. A few of these collectible magnets are still available- but when they’re gone, they’re gone. We’re moving on. No repeats. You snooze, you lose.

15 SECONDS   Amaze your friends with this cassette of 15 second samples of Count Reeshard’s vinyl collection encompassing A through L that he recorded while recovering from his vasectomy in Spring of 1990. If truly curious, inquire about the Dr. Wang experience. It’s unbelievable.

Various Artists: Well Charge – Channel 1

Zoë: Did he know it was your birthday? I mean, he’s the director, he’s kinda busy.

Abernathy: He ate a piece of my birthday cake and he got me a present. Yeah, I think he knew.

Zoë: What’d he get you?

Abernathy: He made me a tape.

Lee: He made you a tape? Wait…he didn’t burn you a CD? He made you a tape? Oh, it’s so romantic.

Abernathy: I know what you’re gonna say, so don’t even go there.

Kim: That sounds like the test of true love to me.

— from Deathproof (2007, w. & dir. Quentin Tarantino)

Today’s offering is my digital transcription of an audio cassette originally bundled within an early ’80s edition of the now late British music weekly New Music Express. I was fortunate in visiting London when this tape first appeared on newsstands. Though even by that date, the tape represented a bygone era. Channel 1 • Well Charge (distinct from the dub album of the same title drawn from tracks by Channel 1’s studio band The Revolutionaries, released by Virgin’s Front Line reggae imprint) compiled 22 choice slices of cultural reggae spanning that music’s golden era in the mid-’70s. Best of all — and I was unaware of this prior to monitoring my Pro Tools input as I dubbed the tape —Channel 1 • Well Charge is a mix tape in the truest and most affectionate sense of the term, with each of its tracks needle-dropped from original vinyl. This, all by way of explaining the dialog quoted above. The deadly beauties conjured by director Quentin Tarantino for his wonderful film Deathproof (originally one-half of the portmanteau feature Grindhouse) knew whereof they spoke.

Many of these cuts will be familiar to reggae aficionados. “Queen Majesty,” which opens the set, later provided the rhythm track for U-Roy’s deathless toast “Chalice In The Palace.” The Tamlins’ “Hard To Confess” is, for my money, of equal value to the vocal trio’s cover of “Baltimore.” And “Shaka The Great” may represent my favorite articulation of the oft-versioned ‘Chang Kai Shek’ riddim. At day’s end, it’s all about the common denominators: Stud-rattling amounts of bass pressure; an infinite field of reverberation; cuffed guitar chords summoning images of asphalt bubbling in the heat of deepest summer; and vocals marinated in that one-of-a-kind Jamaican admixture of suffering, herbal bliss and reverence most deeply felt. Additionally, I’m continually impressed by how cool some of these vocalists sound, singing like birds even as they’re consumed by terminal horniness. 

I tend not to rate music by the studio and/or record label of its origin (and the two were conjoined often enough in Jamaica), save for the avalanche of terrific sounds which poured from Lee Perry’s Black Ark studio between 1974-78. However,Channel 1 • Well Charge speaks worlds about the wonders trapped on tape by the Hoo Kim brothers who produced sessions at Kingston’s Channel 1 studio.  

During the past couple of decades, UK music periodicals such as Q and Mojo have enabled their readers to amass libraries of music by bundling CD’s in their print issues. I’ve enjoyed and learned much from said discs (eg. Mojo‘s Roots Of The Sex Pistols), but one could pit Channel 1 • Well Charge against any of these mix-discs-come-lately, and invariably the humble cassette would come out on top. This rootical potpourri earns the highest accolade I can confer upon a reggae compilation: It returns me, in the span of a very few seconds, to the mindset I entered in 1977 upon my initial scan of Stephen Davis’ and Peter Simon’s impossibly great book, Reggae Bloodlines.

Well Charge002

I won’t belabor the merits of each track included here, if only so I can get this into your hands while daylight remains with which to barbecue. Suffice to say that each entry on Channel 1 • Well Charge is gorgeous, vocal cuts and instrumentals alike. Love it up dear Group, and Jah bless Thomas Jefferson’s libido. There will be more.

UPSETTER CROP

Pictured: Lee “Scratch” Perry.

This past Saturday evening, as experienced collectively by patrons of the Purple Bat Lounge, was extraordinary in the larger measure owing as much to what did not happen as to what did. Space aliens did not visit the bar, nor did bikers in search of comp’ed drinks. Nice Guy Eddie stayed at his end of the block. Co-host Lee-Roy experienced no significant transformations as the result of Uncle Morty’s delivery service. And, by extension, host Reeshard did not lose the will to live because of his co-host’s incorrigible tendencies. Nearly three dozen songs, any one among them capable of breaking a lease, played throughout. However, the specter of Luxuria Music‘s forthcoming Pledge Drive cast a shadow over the proceedings. Lee-Roy offered — and he’s offered before, of course —  his stud services in exchange for listeners’ money. A bold (and somewhat fraudulent) notion from a dog spayed long ago, you might think. You’d be right, but that’s not the half of it. Click below and hear the rest, especially the music. Tune in anyway…

Ike's Instrumentals

Pictured: Ike Turner & His Kings Of Rhythm.

Last Saturday evening seemed a run-of-the-mill affair, another stretch of time casually murdered by the patrons of the Purple Bat Lounge — albeit done to a great soundtrack provided by DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy. Canny observers might guess this would prove an evening like no other when a tray bearing four Lee-Roy Cocktails™ arrived at the DJ booth, all destined for consumption by their namesake. Then the manufacturer of this copious order, bartender LaWanda (wearing a nurse’s uniform and carrying a syringe of intimidating proportions), descended into the bar’s basement. The Purple Bat’s cellar resembles that cave beneath stately Wayne Manor: few venture down and almost none return. Bearing this in mind, LaWanda’s exit raised questions, as did the news of The Madison’s twin-bill of Slaughter blaxploitation movies. Uncle Morty stopped by, as dependable as Old Faithful, with something that had Lee-Roy embarking on a vision quest of sorts, our pointedly non-spiritual pit bull suddenly quoting lines from ur-midnight movie El Topo.

Social fluidity is central to any bar’s existence, or so you’d think. At the Purple Bat Lounge, the fluid part is taken for granted. The patrons’ social skills, on the other hand, could benefit from a periodic tune-up. Consider the random appearance last Saturday of of Nice Guy Eddie, a nogoodnik tuxedo cat with scary dental hygiene issues who’s a frenemy of longstanding with DJ Lee-Roy. Nice Guy Eddie, as it transpired, had been 86’ed for the moment from the Blue Moon, another bar just down Brush Street that was (owing to the cat’s rat-crunching skills) his usual place of employ. Co-host Reeshard suspected Nice Guy Eddie of little beyond looking to get in on Lee-Roy’s latest transaction with Uncle Morty’s truck. And, wouldn’t you know, Reeshard was right. (For the record, said transaction yielded a small jar labeled Forbidden Fruit.) The promise of a Mondo Satanic double feature at the Madison doubtless sweetened the deal. Could anything good have come of this, outside of the three dozen great tunes heard over the evening’s course? Of course not. But we won’t spill it all — you can do that for yourself, simply by filling a glass and clicking appropriately a few pixels south of this sentence. Tune in anyway…

The Purple Bat Lounge, that frabjous spot in a decidedly vorpal neighborhood, on first glance might resemble little more than a backwater of ambitions unfulfilled (if not avoided outright). Yet, beneath that soporific veneer lurks a cauldron of potential conflict awaiting the catalyst that makes everything go oh so very wrong. In the latest instance of same, all it took was DJ Lee-Roy noticing, within last Saturday’s four sets of high velocity tunes, an unusual garment worn by co-host Reeshard. From there, things spiraled downward, aided in no small measure by the arrival of Uncle Morty’s truck with its latest offering: A canister labeled Hannibal Nectar. If you can imagine what this dredged from Lee-Roy’s fertile subconscious, then you’re to be commended for your flair for the bleeding obvious. Though the evening did contain — aside from news of a super slutty twin-bill at The Madison — some actual surprises. The latter may be experienced at safe remove within your own home, simply by clicking in the right spots immediately below. Tune in anyway…

The Vogue Years

Pictured: Françoise Hardy.

As yet another milepost was rounded in the ongoing saga of N.C.I.P. — being the 150th episode — Reeshard & Lee-Roy celebrated in the time-honored manner by cherry-picking their favorite tunes from the preceding two dozen shows. This, much to the delight of patrons within the Purple Bat Lounge…well, those still conscious by 9pm. (It’s to be noted that, given the hour, this in no way guaranteed a consensus.) Over three dozen tunes were heard, Uncle Morty dropped off an old favorite at the mid-point and, to honor their favorite canine co-host, the Madison’s programmers slated a twin-bill of Pam Grier movies. You’d assume these represented the components of a proper commemoration, but then, you’re not Lee-Roy. No, the dog demanded celebrity endorsement for his achievement. And to that end, eventually, he succeeded…sort of. But that’s the part of last Saturday evening best discovered by clicking in all the right places just a few pixels south of this sentence. Tune in anyway…
